How do I child-proof my home?
Children tend to get bitten by the curiosity bug, grabbing everything they can reach, climbing on anything bigger than they are and chewing on things that are not always edible.
Child-proofing your house is the best way to ensure you are keeping your kids safe. Here are some ways to do that.
- Use child safety gates to block doorways to rooms that your kids should not be allowed into unsupervised.
- Place child locks on drawers and cabinets, especially ones that hold silverware or glasses.
- Make sure any prescription medication bottles in the house have child-proof caps on them.
- Use plastic stoppers to cover up electrical outlets so children cannot touch them.
- Keep cleaning products and other chemicals out of the reach of children.
- Whenever possible, keep home security system components throughout the house out of a child's reach so they cannot hurt themselves or damage the security alarms.
These are all ways to keep your kids safe from potential dangers inside the house. To protect them from outside dangers use security alarms that will prevent burglars from breaking into your home.
